Faces to names, back at the ranch…..

As clients you may have met some of our team in person already, maybe we have been to visit your company, maybe you have visited us at our plant in Macclesfield, Cheshire?

If neither is true, now’s a chance to put a face to a name, I’ve also added a brief outline of what they look after at County Labels.

You liked the Free Christmas Labels….How about some of these for the office Mug?

We all like free stuff, don’t we?

At Christmas we offered free Christmas labels for which there were lots of takers!  So, we decided to have some fun and make some more free labels.  These are specifically for having a bit of fun and banter in the office.

If you fancy some of the fun labels below, just drop a “Yes Please” email to and we will send a load over for you.

Reminder – Training Programs


A quick reminder about our In-house Training Programmes.

If you use labels but you don’t know a great deal about them, maybe you don’t know about all the options or materials available to you.  Maybe you don’t know about some of the clever money and space saving options open to you.

If you don’t know much about labels, it’s highly likely that your current label solution could be bettered???

Here at County Labels we run Training courses as follows:

  • Beginner– for those who know little or nothing of labels and or printing
  • Intermediate – for those who perhaps know a little of printing but nothing much of labels
  • Advanced – for those who know about printing but want to be label Jedi

The courses we offer are free of charge, typically take half a day for each level, for up to 6 delegates per course.

Participants can decide for themselves which level course they come to, there is no prerequisite for any of them albeit if you know nothing of print or labels the advanced course will be tough going to say the least!

If this may be of interest to you or your Team, please drop an email to me and I’ll contact you to discuss further and or arrange.

See you again in March!
